I guess Hilmar needs to wait for a bit longer for that 600K goal Twisted
Years back, there was an old picture of him and a whiteboard with EVE population projection pointing to 600K.

But if they do that they'll lose their "inevitable win" blanket and actually have to deal with losing stuff.


Guess you never tried rolling on splinters in naxxramas, bindings in molten core or the phoenix in tempest keep... you should try playing an mmo where you can't just plex back what you loose.


You don't really lose anything in those situations though, bar the time you put in to get as far as you did and the "oh noes I has to rep my gear".

"Subscribers" is wholly misleading. You do not have 500,000 subscribers but 500,000 accounts. In a game where multiboxing is heavily prioritized, this is an outright lie.

I'm a relatively respectable citizen. Multiple felon perhaps, but certainly not dangerous.

Of course they do. How many of those are unique is a different question.

Would estimate between 150k-300k unique subscribers everyone other than the recluses seems to have atleast 1 alt these days and many players have multiple accounts.

Not sure how many subs are in China, but lets assume all these numbers are on the same server. So there are 500K accounts and ~50K players online every day. This means each of us would have around 10 account. Man... this is serious boting :|

So in actuality 100k people and 400k alts.

50k is the Peak Concurrent Users. Not the total number of people who've connected.


Not everyone lives in your timezone...

Woo! CSM XI!

"Seagate's sales numbers are wholly misleading!!! Customers with RAID need more than one harddisk!!!! Lie!!!!"

From now on sales numbers should only include unique customer names, right?

No, it really doesn't. It just means that most players do not religiously log on every day at peak hours.

What exactly constitutes a subscriber? If a pay for 3 accounts am I 3 subscribers? If so what is the number of actual paying players excluding their alt accounts? Is PLEX figured into those numbers?

That's good news, but it would be interesting to know how many people play this game, in other words, beating hearts?

You would be a subscriber with 3 active accounts. They count it by active accounts, as does every other company. Accounts paid with PLEX would be figured in to those numbers as they would show as active.
